The Deadly Jigsaw Puzzle by Alma Halbert Bond

My patient, Veronica Vail, was murdered in her Park Avenue apartment. Lt. John Franklin asks my help in finding the killer. We interview her husband Roland, his daughter by a former marriage who never liked Veronica, and Carlos de la Cuesta, a handsome, black-haired drag queen in love with Roland. Lt. Franklin hypothesizes that a stranger broke into the Vail apartment to steal a painting. Roland confirms that an expensive painting has disappeared. A maid named Lottie Lobell tells us that while looking out the window on the day of the murder, she saw a black-haired man run away from the building carrying a painting. He is found and brought in for questioning. Using purely psychological clues, I confront all the suspects with the truth. The killer collapses under my inquisition, and confesses.

Mysterious and thrilling Dr. Bond pens a great story, and introduces Dr. Mary Wells, who assists the NYPD. It's a story that you can tell stems from Bond's experiences, and I like that it's a good solid mystery. With unpredictability, the story has multiple layers and is not just a typical mystery. It's not a typical anything, and it works. I know this is the first book in the series, and I look forward to reading more about Dr. Wells, and anything from Dr. Bond.
